    I plan to start SW on Wednesday but I need to go shopping in the morning for my weekly shop, now we are veggie so I will be doing green days.

    I only shop once a week and my hubby is only off tomorrow and sadly I can't wait till Thursday so what should I buy / avoid.

    I'm thinking fry light, quorn etc what bread is a HE and what good snaks are low in sins? I'm breast feeding my 3 week old son so need lots to keep me going.

    Any help much appreciated as I don't want to buy food that will go to waste.

    Weight Wacthers brown danish is a winner as you can have three slices as your HEB and also I would say stock up on muller lights as most are syn free (inc vanilla w/ choc!) and I have at least one a day .. they are a SW must have :p

    Also, heres my fave snacks!

    Fig rolls 3.5 syns
    Curly Wurlys 6 syns
    Wagon Wheels 8 syns (but I normally have half so its only 4)
    Mini milks 1.5 syns
    Skinny Cow double choc ice lollies 4.5

    I always look forward to whatever treat I am having with my syns each day and it is normally one of those ^

    Mug shots, don't know if any are veggie though, quark, baked beans are brilliant on jackets, asda do a lovely chickpea dahl in a tin which is free on green or EE, as is pasta n sauce batchelors, and savory rice. Tuna and all fish (not in oil) is free on red or EE as is all lean meat, pasta, rice, lentils etc free on green or EE. Fruit and veg, stock cubes, I like knorr best. Hope this helps a bit. Don't know about veggie yogs sorry.

    do your shopping online (tends to be a bigger range than going in to the shop)

    at least that way you arent throwing goodies into your trolley!:D

    You'll probably have a lot of stuff already in the house or on your 'normal' shopping list.

    Cous Cous
    Cans of chopped tomatoes
    Herbs, spices and seasonings
    Baked Beans

    Quorn (fillets, pieces, mince, sausages)
    Any wholemeal bread - you can have 57g as a Healthy Extra
    Milk - semi-skimmed/skimmed (whichever you prefer)
    Fat free yoghurts - fruity and natural
    Fat free cottage cheese
    Alpen Lights or Ryvita Goodness cereal bars
    High fibre cereal or porridge (if you like them for brekkie)
    Reduced fat cheese

    I don't usually use my syns on snacks but some thing I get would be:
    Dried apricots
    Cereal bars (see above)
    Pudding rice (for SW rice pudding)
    Kelloggs Crunchy Oatbakes (cereal but useful as a sweet replacement)

    if you are breast feeding you are allowed more healthy extras depending on age of baby. My son is 13 weeks so I am allowed 4 more. They recommend at least one is a hex a. I find it really difficult to eat that much!!!!! I snack on fruit fruit and more fruit!!!!

    Donnie46 Slow but sure....

    Asda have a new fat free yoghurt out that is suitable for vegetarians, they contain no gelatin.

    My favourite yoghurt is a good big dollop of natural (fat free) yoghurt, half a teaspoon of granulated splenda and a similar amount of raspberries as yoghurt - ideally frozen raspberries as they half-freeze the yoghurt around them and it's lovely! I try to avoid too much chemical stuff and find that muller lights give me headaches, think I'm sensitive to the aspartame.

    As you get extra HEs and may struggle to eat so much food some days, I'd say get some extra virgin olive oil, you can use a tablespoon as a HEB and it's great for salads etc. I have a tub with a lid and I stick my salady stuff in there with a tablespoon of EVOO, some dried herbs, and a bit of piri piri sauce or lemon juice, stick the lid on and give it a good shake :D
